From her website:
The Sampler Company was formed in 1989 by best-selling author/designer Brenda Keyes.
Brenda originally trained in graphic design, but had a life-long interest in embroidery, art and history.
Her first step towards a career in embroidery was to gain a distinction in City & Guilds embroidery in 1985. She then taught at several adult education venues for a number of years.
Her first company 'Country Yarns' evolved into The Sampler Company in 1989 when Brenda realised that samplers were her all-abiding passion.
|Following a small feature in the then new 'Best' magazine in 1989, Brenda was inundated with requests for more designs and so began a small company that has flourished and blossomed over the years.
To date Brenda has had six books published and contributed to two more.
She has also designed for most of the leading needlecraft/craft publications in the UK and abroad, featured in a craft video with Jane Greenoff filmed at Sudeley Castle, designed for DMC, and has one of her designs 'in residence' at Stafford High House.
She was named
'The nation's favourite sampler designer.' (Needlecraft Magazine.)
& 'Undisputed sampler queen.' (Cross Stitcher.)
Her designs continue to sell all over the world.
